« Part 2: Starting up Part 3 of That OddLots Ad series Part 4: Panel #2 is in the clamps.... »

Just couldn’t stay out of the shop, that day ( paid for it the next..OW!) so after supper, I went back to the shop..

Instead of that huge #8…went with the lighter #7c….got an edge on one 1×6 jointed, test with the filler strip for gaps. Mark both as to where they will meet…worked the second 1×6 straight…only worked on one edge, for now.

Got to where all three would sit still, without clamps or glue…more markings. One 1×6 stayed put, in the vise, a bead of glue was run along the freshly planed edge, the filler strip added ( by sliding it around, until it “stuck”), then a second bead was applied to the filler strip’s edge, and the other 1×6 was slid around…The mess even just sat there, no clamps were needed to keep them there..but…

I started with a clamp in the middle…then a clamp at each end…

After going to the trouble of making sure one end was straight, a caul was clamped in place to keep it flat as well..this will be the top of the panel…trimming is being kept to as little as I can here….

Far end, where a foot profile will get cut out, still needed a caul, to pull things flat..

Swept the floor, and called it a day…the next day was a shopping day….pine 1×2s for webframes were picked up, and a pair of 1×12x 4’ pine planks. They will be the center (unseen) dividers…
Shopping day…I stayed out of the shop…was doing errands all day.

Stay tuned….
